everybody's got a story - Amanda Marshall

i was singing and dancing to this walking with Harlow while listening to this in the park earlier. after quitting my job. it was beautiful.

it was the best walk ever. 2 hours long with music and harlow. no time limit. just being. just enjoying. i laughed, cried, ran, walked, was angry, happy, mad, sad.... "it was a damn movie!" Gavin remarked with a chuckle. hah!

i have decided that being silly every day is a requirement. i take life too seriously too often. i need to ENJOY it. let go, remember? (i say to myself).

ok yoga tomorrow. must. go. to. sleep.  Florence and The Machine sound sooooo good though too!!! (P.S.)

Peace. Love. Happiness.

Lyrics too, for those in weird countries that ban awesome videos! :-P <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">
Intro

alalalalalalala ohhhh ohh yeah

Verse
You walk up to me and say
"Feel like I know you baby"
And then take a sip of your cherry coke now
Now who drinks a cherry coke?
Maybe you're nervous, I see that bead of sweat
Dancin' on your cheek
Your words are like cheap champagne
I get the point but it's much too sweet

I'm so tired of the dance
This carousel of superficial conversation
Gets me nowhere...

Chorus
So you can see my bra underneath my shirt
Watch the wind underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
It's the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart
Yeah everybody's got a story that could break your heart

lalala lalana nanana nana na naaa

Verse
Now who can read the mind
Of the red-headed girl next door (mm)
Or the taxi driver who just dropped you off or the
Or the classmate that you ignore
Don't assume everything on the surface is what you see
'Cause that classmate just lost her mother
And that taxi-driver's got a Ph.D

I'm so tired of the fear that
Weighs us down with wrong assumptions
Of broken hearts and natural function

Chorus
So you can see my bra underneath my shirt
Watch the wind underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
It's the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my bra underneath my shirt
Watch the wind underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart (your heart)

Solo
lalalala lalala ladada da da da

Bridge
So dig deep (dig deep)
Deeper than the image that you see (dig deep)
Lift the vail and let your true self breathe (dig deep)
And show the world the beauty underneath (she kills this note, haha)

Chorus
See my bra underneath my shirt
Watch the wind underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture, it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
It's the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my bra underneath my shirt
Watch the wind underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture, it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
It's the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

Outro
That could break your heart baby
Everybody's got a story, oh yeah
lalala nanana lala nanana
lalala nanana nanana....

another primate I love

You can't help but laugh when you watch this:



They really do love their sex. Seriously; it's so funny. We share 97% DNA with Bonobos (Pan paniscus). We share 99% DNA with Chimpanzees (Pan troglodyte), which is the violent and territorial of the two species in the genus. Hmm... if only we could be more like the Bonobos, and hippies... "make love not war".

Peace, Love, Happiness.

One of my absolute favourite primates: Gibbons

The true "brachiators". I love their furry little faces, and their super long legs and arms :). Plus their obvious talent for literally flying from tree to tree through the jungle.

I have yet to find a good video of them in action in the wild, but here is a little taste of their brachiating talent :) :
